11:38 am
have been the only commanding officer for 7 weeks in that period of time i had the opportunity to witness dedicated officers do great police work. they are met with challenges on a daily basis and through their efforts they meet our ecpectations and quite often surpass them. i'm equally impress bide the communities drive to be part of the solution in the community squu long with that the officers at tearville station recognize the partnership with that community. so, this evening i won't put you to sleep with a powerpoint. i'll attempt to address as i do my community members so i tend to talk and i will go over the tearville district a little bit and also bring up the concerns that most impact the community and what we hear from them and how our officers are responding. currently win the
11:39 am
tearville we have 109 signed and [inaudible] 5 civilians. the members are separated by captain staff, by a incredible station investigative team led by inspector mullen. we have a day watch, which is broken up into o 600 watch and a later watch that starts at 11 a.m. and a night watch which compiles the swing watch and midnight officers. to the side, the tnt, there are 4 officers that are dedicated in working in the areas of concern and they fall under the investigative team as well. right now within the tearville we have 15 sergeants and officers who language profinishant. they specialize in cantonese, french, mand ren,
11:40 am
spanish and tugalling. we spend them out between the day and night watch. we have 24 sergeant officers on the crise intervention team. this was mentioned by dc [inaudible] 17 of those officers runder our day watch and 7 under the night watch. our crisis intervention training is offered quarterly and as commanding officers we do the best to serve 2 to 3 office rbs at a time so we look forward to seeing those numbers increase. as far as the personal break down by race and gender, 15 percent are female and 85 are male. this falls in line with the population of female officers in the department so reflect ivof what the department has and broke it down by race as well. we have 40 percent white officers, 31 asian, 12 hispanic, 13 philippineee and 2 percent black and other falls under
11:41 am
that. our district is the largest in the city and that may pose to us some challenges gegraphly in the officers responding, i think they do a wonderful job maneuving through the district and get toog the calls. we are broken into 6 sector cars and within the community yp supported greatly by my c pap which is community police advisory board and community groups. the community groups i have listed are the ones we interact with the most. there are a lot of neighborhoods watch groups as well valuable to the process. and then we are lucky enough to have 4 district 4 board supervisor tang, yee, avalos and london breed. i will say in my time i have been at tearville station supervisor tang and supervisor yee have
11:42 am
been very responsive, very proactive and the community relies on them to pass information through to us and we are able to devise plans together and not only devise the plans but come up with follow up also. so, let's review the crimes that impact the community. we are fortunate in the tear ville ville district to have a high rate of crime. we did a comparison to 13-14 and 14-15. shooting and homicide is down and domestic violence with a slight increase. the next 3 slides are the crimes that impact the community the most. they are the crimes that the communities most concerned about. it is the crimes i get the most e-mails about and the community meetings are about. robberies in the tearival district have gone up. 50
11:43 am
percent of the robberies occur on instreet and 25 are commercial robberies and finish out the final 25 percent of residential or muni robberies. burglaries, come up often for us. we have a increase. the most frightening are hot prowls and take place when you are home and the sus pebt comes home. we have a large pattern of knock enforced burglaries where a suspect come tooz the door and knock and if they hear nothing they go to the back door and come to the home. we do outreach because when the suspect hears someone is home they leave so we spend a lot of time doing outreach, on the website, letting people know what they can do to prevent from being victim jz what they should do once they are
11:44 am
victims. we also seen a increase in grad bike thefts so we talk about locking up their bikes. through the public education we talk about prevention and with director susan burton this week from project safe we were able to discuss service they offer bike scrurt and went over the kids and cops program and other things we can do as far as pedestrian and bike safety. then we talk to the community as a benefit of security cameras and alarm system squz we are very fortunate in this day and time we do get a lot of citizens with the cameras and can give the information. auto burglaries on the rise. in the month of may we had a peek in themism we attribute that to
11:45 am
[inaudible] in the district as well as a golf tournament. auto burglies are tricky because they require a lot of surveillance. the officers have to be consistently. it takes time. when i was a young officer i remember having to be out there for many many days trying to track suspects. with the staffing we have we try to push the midnight officers so we can get them out of their uniform and into the plain clothe squz a lot of public awareness of letting the community know not to leave anything visible in the car and lock the doors. i understand how the community is feeling, i receive a lot of e-mails and people exspessing how they feel victimized when they come to the car. i was a member of the city and county resident and was in that spot as well so i'm very sympathetic. then we do
11:46 am
follow up. a lot oof times we are told something is stolen we have eerlth the psa or cadet call back and get follow up information for serial numbers and any other information they may have for us. i added this slide gauze because i want to show how wide spread it. is we try to be strategic and when we vaissue like this we try it go at it the best we can but this is how the district looks in the month of june in regards to auto burglies mpt [inaudible] field interview cards. the officers are always encouraged to fill them out. [inaudible] would be used in times if they came into a consensual encounter with a subject or if they detain somebody but the interaction didn't warrant them writing a police report. we encourage the officer tooz fill
11:47 am
out the fi cards that are entered into a data base. what is great about the fi cards is they allow us to link subject together. what vehicles they rin, the locations they frequent in the district so a officer that is doing a investigation may have a few tips on what is suspect may be and when they search it they may get a link based othen field interview card. the first sinsh months of the year the officers issued [inaudible] fi cards which leads the district in the city. now i'll give over the podium to actingue tenent inspector mullen. i wanted to highlight the great work the station is doing. we refer to them as [inaudible] so i give you inspector mullen. >> thank you captain. members of the commission, command staff and public. thank you
11:48 am
for giving me this opportunity to let know what the investigation team and tearival. i have been with the department for 23 years and coming to tearival it is interesting to see the explosion of the technology that happened over the recent years. in my tenure i haveants n't seen such great tools to combat the crimes occurring in tearival and sit a wide. the crime data ware house we use now is a great tool. it gives information that we can actually pull information out of and we construct our officers to target certain areas within the tearival district as it relates to property crimes, robberies and burglaries. so, we also have
11:49 am
the use of video now. it has come of age where a lot of private and commercial establishments have video in their works on their perimeters so we are establishing a catalog of these within the district and have over 200 cataloged now. we can access when the crime occurs and go to the sites and ask them if we can utileize their video which led to great arrests. we have one of the best video officers in the department. he is very highly technologically experienced. he is a great officer and he is able to go out into the field, pull nrfgz as investigators we can utilize to solve crimes. the other thing is that the department
11:50 am
has recently supplied all the smart phones to all the investigators not only to us but to the officers in the field, so that is giving us a whole different view of having this readily available information that we can use out in the field so it is all about communication, getting information to everybody in the field and it would help for officer safety and it is also to catch the bad guys, if you will. our e-mail system is remarkable. i'm kind of old school so i'm getting into the new technology and the use of the e-mail system within the depermanent has become such a incredible tool to share information from district to district. if there is a wanted party in the bay view and we know this in the theirival he
11:51 am
may reside in ingle side so everybody knows about these people that are either persons of interest or they are actually suspects and wanted on a crime via a arrest warrant, so that information, all the officers are up to speed and this is daily. every time we are at work, we are connected with this e-mail system. all that information, having the phones, this new report writing system we are using, it is bringing everybody today. we are able to get a wealth of information that we are able to identify the crime trends in the district and targ the areas and have been successful with all these new tools that are available now. the other thing is at theirival station we have i think we have a great
11:52 am
relationship with the investigation team and the officers that work in the district. we share information, it is all about the communication again. it is also about making sure that if the are wanted people in our district, we want to make sure every officer has knowledge of that and there is training that the investigators do for patrol so we get these young officers-it is on going teaching environment that they are always brought into had the loop of the investigation because without them on the streets we are going to have a much more difficult job trying to solve these crimes without their help. it is about having this collaborative effort that everybody is on the same page and that there is this wealth of information with everybody at tearival station. we do track the robberies and burglies occurring in the
11:53 am
tearival district and have been very successful of recent of identifying 2 teams of burglars in the tearival district, not only where they work but work outside of our specific district. this was a city wide burglary ring. with those 2 teams, if you will, we saw little reduction in the burglies in the tearival because they identified tearville as a target rich environment because it is primarily residential so we are getting out into the community as the captain said, but not only in the community meeltings but wree trying to educate the victims of these crimes. when i make these calls or go out and visit with the victim, i want to make sure that they are -their homes are fortified. if
11:54 am
there is something i see that maybe they are tighten up i suggest that to them and make sure they hear the concerns that their homes may have to become vulnerable to suspects and the opportunityest out there and they are everywhere. we try to make sure that we are communicate wg the community, teaching them and bringing them up to speed with what they can do to make their homes and persons safer and that of course goes with the autoboth. the [inaudible] is up on the rise. it is crime of opportunity where a lot of suspects, they are everywhere. they see cars that have anything inside sth car or a person comes to their destination and they go to the trunk or reach underneath their seat and if there is a
11:55 am
opportunist their car will be broken into. those crimes are difficult for on view. it is like inyou are in the right place at the right time that is how be catch these people but we reach out and welcome all the public to call us with any sort of leads, license plates, types of victim, description of suspects. without that information it becompls a very difficult crime to solve but we have been successful with that. recently we had a team of working car thiefs that we identified and arrested so we have seen a little reduction in that respect for auto breakens. we also utilize some of the plot maps to keep parole up to speed with where a lot of these crimes are occurring. there was a plot map and that was just for the auto break ins
11:56 am
which is remarkable when you think about how many are actually occurring. when the officers see this as tearival station they see the auto break in squz the robberies and the burbleries and the assaults and serious attacks and they can get a really good understand when they are out on their skneets understand they need to concentrate on these areas at specific times of the day. that is helpful because if we can suppress the crime just by being in a hot area it will keep our victimization down and that is what wree trying to prevent. it is about communicate within the company and the public. as far as i can speak for my team been doing this a long time and it is nice to be surrounded by
11:57 am
such a energetic crew. there are 6 investigators under me now but we are one team and we work really well together. everybody on the team is very energetic and motivated and have seasoned investigators we are fortunate to have at tearville station. all is this good effort to identify crime patterns not only do we sit behind a desk and get on the phone and talk and try to do as much as we can that way, but we get into the field a lot and that is something that has kind of evolved probably over the last year, year and a half and as a investigator it is nice to actually get out into the field because nobody wants to sit behind a desk all day on the telephone writing notes and things like that so when we get fl to the field we take a
11:58 am
bunch of information and concentrate on certain areas we are having problems in the district. 46 and judah where we have quality of life issues or out at john mure and sky line looking for auto burglies or doing a grid pattern search in the sun set district looking for opportunist breaks into our homes out there. we get out into the field in plain clothes and conduct surveillance and becoming very successful with these types of operationism we do oporder within house so we get into the community to conduct surveillance. we do surveillance to identify who is doing our burglaries and our vehicles and home burglaries
11:59 am
and robbery stake outs. we take that information and set in areas where we know there is hot spot for street robberies and it has been successful but you is to get out of the office to do that and that is what we are doing as a whole as the investigation team at tearville station. we are doing a lot of parole and probation searches and arrest warrant suv ss, we are doing search warrants so wree trying to hold back the criminal element as best we can at tearival. the other thing is as a whole i'm proud to be part of the tearville station investigation team because we have had really good success and we can only go up. utilizing the technology that the department is supplying
12:00 pm
now, it can only help solve more crime jz be more proactf with that. having said that, thanks for your attention. >> thank you ted for all that information. i promise i told him 2 to 3 minute presentation but we went to it. all good information he is supplying tonight. the final thing i'll present is traffic enforcement and it is one of the biggest concerns of the community in the tearville. for me as the commanding officer it is high priorities. for those member thofz community that dobet know, vision zero within san francisco is a city wide effort to have no fatalities by the year 204. under the program of focus on the 5, the san francisco police department does a daily effort of focusing on the 5 violations that are most responsible for
